I noted that The Village in Essex had updated their menu and I was curious so off we went for dinner a few days ago. When we were visiting Gloucester with our children 20 years ago or so, the Village was one of the places we would gather with Gloucester family members so it holds some special memories for us. In the years since, we do go once in a while and have had a lovely experience each time. The recent visit was the same. We made easy online reservations and were seated even though we arrived early. We appreciated that the market prices were posted in the lobby for advance reference. Shout out to Eileen, our friendly server! I noticed several families with young children as well as older couples enjoying their meals so it’s popular for many.
Jim tried the Sicilian Fish Stew and the Seafood Trio. I had the Mediterranean Chicken and I ate every single bite. Strawberry Shortcake for dessert was plenty for the two of us. The choices on the updated menu were nicely varied and suited our tastes. We enjoyed our evening very much and will plan another visit soon!
